We like to share good news in our Mew and Nips column, and I can’t think of better news than saving the lives of one million cats! The Million Cat Challenge reached this goal a year ahead of schedule. After more than 1,000 animal shelters in North America joined forces to save the animals, the campaign announced last week that it has exceeded that number just four years after the campaign’s launch. As of December 31, 2017, the shelters collectively saved a total of 1,148,129 cats. The current count on the Million Cat Challenge website is 1,331,167 cats.
